After you are set up with an account, you’re almost ready to secure your seats. To proceed, make sure you are logged into your Eventive Account.

Select “Tallpass Ticket Reservation” — Add this ticket to your cart and proceed through checkout. A confirmation email with the ticket will be sent to you shortly afterward. You will need this ticket to get into each film or party.
